Abstract: The Health Resources and Services Administration, HIV/AIDS Bureau (HRSA/HAB) implements the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program (RWHAP). This program provides HIVrelated services in the United States for those who do not have sufficient health care coverage or financial resources for coping with HIV disease. Starting January 1, 2014, the ACA began making health care coverage available to many HIV-positive individuals who did not previously have access to such coverage. This ACA expansion of health coverage will impact a significant portion of Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program’s (RWHAP) traditional clients who will be moving into third party reimbursement care. The transition will require increased support and coordination to ensure clients do not experience gaps in coverage, or gaps in care. The purpose of this evaluation study is to assess the current status of Ryan White services during the early and later stages of ACA DATES: implementation and to collect information on service provisions, quality of care, barriers, gaps, and challenges related to ACA implementation. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The ACA will offer new options for obtaining health care services for many individuals with HIV. Due to these changes, additional information concerning staffing, continuity and coordination of care, and utilization of RWHAP funds to provide essential services is necessary. Data from this evaluation study will be used to assess the current status of Ryan White services during the early (January 2014 to June 2014) and later (July 2014 to December 2014) stages of ACA implementation and how well the RWHAP is positioned to improve clinical outcomes, including viral suppression, retention to care, and linkage to care services. Likely Respondents: HIV Providers and Administrators from RWHAPfunded facilities. Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information; to search data sources; to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
